Additional Comments: I am building 2 PC's for my cousins who been saving up like forever to play SC2 in max resolution, therefore I am looking for nice combo deals to help them save some cash since I wont be building their units until after x-mas break.
wow, the combo for the PSU and the mobo is a really nice price... it seems like they removed the instant $50 for the combo though. Im suprised for the price for the 6850... i remember paying around 350 for the 5850 just 8 months ago... sigh...
I went ahead and purchased 2 of the mobo and PSU combo... However, I was thinking... If i were to build one system with the 6850 and the other with the GTX 460. Would I have issues if I were to follow batchuka's build??? Since I am building 2 PC's.. I was thinking of using it as a learning experience and having fun with it.
